How can we help?

Garmin Connect

You can now connect your Runtastic Account to your Garmin Connect account. This means that you are able to import activities that you track with your Garmin device into your Runtastic account.

Connect

To connect your Garmin Connect account to your Runtastic account, please follow the steps below:

  • Ensure that your Runtastic app version is at least 7.3.0
  • Open the drawer menu in the top left corner
  • Tap “Settings"
  • Scroll to “Partner Accounts”
  • Select the “Connect” button under “Garmin Connect”
  • Click on “authorise” to enable Garmin to share data with Runtastic
  • Enter your Garmin log in details

Once your account is connected, any sports activities that you undertake with your Garmin device, once synced to your Garmin Connect account, will also be imported to your Runtastic account. A push notification will inform you when your activity is available.

Garmin Supported Devices

This feature currently supports Forerunner, GPS enabled Vivo models as well as a basic integration with Edge for cyclists. We are, however, working on enabling this feature for as many Garmin devices as possible.

Which Data gets imported to Runtastic?

The following data will be imported into Runtastic: Distance, Duration, Pace, Split Times, Elevation*, Calories and Heart Rate. As Garmin Connect is designed differently, certain data such as Heart Rate Zones, Power, Cadence, Steps, Active Minutes and Sleep will not be synced.

Note: a “multisport session” is synced to Runtastic as separate activities. For example, if you track a Triathlon activity, it will be imported to Runtastic as three separate sessions. (Swimming, Cycling, Running).

* Once imported into Runtastic, you may notice a difference in the Elevation Values. It is, however, possible to edit these values using the instructions linked here.

Disconnect:

To disconnect your Runtastic account from your Garmin Connect account, please follow the steps below:

  • Open the drawer menu in the top left corner
  • Tap “Settings”
  • Scroll to “Social Connect”
  • select “Disconnect”

Although it will still show as “connected to Runtastic” in Garmin Connect, the connection will no longer be active. If you would like to change this display in your Garmin Connect account, log in with your account details on connect.garmin.com and click Profile > Settings > Account Information.
